Peru ‘s long-term hydropower plans

According to Peruvian president, Alan Garcia, the building of 20 new hydroelectric facilities on the Amazonian river of Maranon, to the north of the country, is an initiative of national interest.
 
The hydropower plants, which will be built gradually and generate up to 12 400 MW, or more than twice the power currently produced in the country, will also contribute to plans to export electricity to neighboring countries.
 
The construction of the hydro plants will require an investment of $ 6.6 billion and will be built over the next 15-20 years, Garcia confirmed.
